My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I had to restore my computer. I downloaded Firefox and was logging in. I was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account using the email I knew was the right one to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. I was told I'd be sent an email. No.

A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them? I really need the bookmarks. And why would they disappear if the password wasn't changed?

I hope I missed something - like a created a second account without realizing it. Thanks for your help.

I guess, it's one of the most asked question. How can i move my profile and the cache location..... and most importand: Why is it not a nativ option in the preference? It's all about speed and security. I use uptodate betaversions on a mac. But that second part of my question is related to pc and mac.

Btw: I know about the cache. Adding the "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" as a string and adding my location. But i don't know about a about:config setting to move my Profile too.

So, my problem is: I go to settings --> lanugages --> search for more languages -->click the romanian language but when i try to click the remove it doesn't work, and it doesn't look like i even can. I do have another language besides it, which is english, obv, but i want to remove it bc sometimes it's in romanian. I tried restarting the browser as well multiple times but still i can't seem to be able to remove it, any clues/hints on what i can do?

Don't know if I asked this before but I'll asked anyway. As of a couple a days ago everything was OK with Firefox. I was running good,Google was my default search engine. Now it's Bing as search engine,no Firefox page and I can't change it. Tried change search engine but couldn't change it and can't get Firefox page back. Does anyone know how to fix this? I wish Microsoft would stop trying to shove there stuff down our throats. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Bob

I have been requested to uninstall Adobe Flash player. I am still using Flash Player for some web sites and am ask to activate before video will work. At the end of the year I am told that Flash Player will no longer work. I asked one of the sites what I should do and they recommended using Chrome and html5 to watch video. I have also checked several sites to see what can be done with Firefox to continue watching video without changing browsers. I wish Firefox would put out a step by step process to fix this problem and allow me to use html5 in a Firefox browser. I am reluctant to uninstall Flash Player until I understand how to make html5 or whatever is required to continue to watch live stream and youtube. It looks like I have until January before Flash Player is inoperative. BTW, I have Firefox version 82, running Win10 with Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. Jay

On Firefox 82 on Ubuntu.

After dealing with the forced updates I manually disabled them, which takes a surprising amount of Googling since the setting was placed in about:config recently. However, I'm still being prompted to restart whenever an update is available.

If this can't be fixed, I'm done with Firefox - it's honestly something extremely basic and that the setting is hidden, and doesn't do anything. makes no sense.

Infinite Security Alert loop on Firefox browser for https site using SSL Certificate

Hi There,

I'm hoping someone can help me on this I have exhausted several options so far.

I am trying to access a https site using an SSL Certificate (Specifically Chain of Trust with a root, intermediate and server certificate) on Firefox, however whenever I attempt to visit the site a recurring Security Alert pop up continues to appear with the message: "A secure connection with site cannot be verified. Would you still like to proceed?" . The certificate isn't signed which is the reason for the popup.

I use the website frequently on other browsers and subsequently press yes and continue to the site, but on Firefox the same Security Alert pop continues to appear regardless of the number of times I accept it.The issue is specifically related to Firefox as I can accept the certificate on Chrome, IE and Edge and not face the same issue.

I have tried multiple options to circumvent the issue, including adding the CA's into my Trusted Root Certification Authorities on my Windows (and setting security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true), and manually importing the certificates into Firefox under the Authorities section of the Options menu, clearing cache and cookies and restarting browser/machine. I have added the hostname of the site to the hosts file, and even as a test temporarily disabled SCL validation to see if this would prevent it. However in all cases the security popup continues to reappear, in an infinite loop.

Does anyone know of any alternative ways that will allow me to proceed to the website, or circumvent the Security Alert loop problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.
